This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement of Genting UK Plc ("Genting") and its subsidiary companies for the financial year ending 31 December 2020.
Genting remains committed to the continuous improvement of its practices to combat slavery and human trafficking. We prohibit all forms of slavery and human trafficking in all parts of our business and supply chains.
Following a review of the steps we have taken over the past year, we consider that our business remains at a relatively low risk of slavery and human trafficking given that we operate in the leisure industry and the majority of roles we offer and services we require from our suppliers are highly regulated or require technical or industry specific skills.
Our supply chains include: IT and technology, marketing, professional services, food and beverage, software, hardware, fixtures and fittings supply. We will continue to ensure that we mitigate any slavery and human trafficking risk presented by our suppliers by implementing stringent contractual standards and by monitoring potential risk areas through audits, due diligence and by requiring key suppliers to confirm statements relating to anti-slavery and human trafficking.
We have designated responsibility to an administrator at each operational site to conduct right to work and reference checks against all new employees and we ensure that all staff involved in recruitment are aware of their obligations in relation to anti-slavery and human trafficking. Our HR business partners provide advice and guidance to our operational units on such matters and our payroll systems records that we have received eligibility to work documents.
To promote understanding of the risks presented by slavery and human trafficking we provide training to our staff as part of their corporate social responsibility training and we have made anti-slavery and human trafficking educational material available on our internal training academy so that it can be accessed and viewed by all staff. We supplement this training with specific policies on other social and ethical issues such as anti-bribery and corruption, anti-harassment and bullying, and have recently launched a five point “respect at work charter” which aims to ensure all our staff feel respected and valued. We also maintain the “whistleblowing hotline” which allows staff to raise any concerns they have confidentially.
This statement has been approved by the board of Genting UK Plc on 18 February 2021 and is signed by Rt. Hon Lord Kenneth Baker on the board's behalf.
